    EDSA’s timely reminder: power truly resides in ordinary Pinoys — VP Leni

    EDSA’s timely reminder: power truly resides in ordinary Pinoys — VP Leni

    The spirit of the 1986 EDSA People Power Revolution remains significant to this day, Vice President Leni Robredo said, as she called on the Filipino people to remember the occasion regardless of political affiliation.

    For VP Leni, the EDSA Revolution should serve as a reminder to every citizen that power truly resides in ordinary Filipinos uniting for the common good.

    “Para sa akin, mahalaga na kino-commemorate siya para hindi natin nakakalimutan iyong lessons. Iyong pinakamahalagang lesson doon, pagpapaalala na iyong kapangyarihan, nasa kamay ng ordinaryong Pilipino—na kahit gaano man ka-powerful, o kahit gaano ka-imposible iyong tinitingnan na task, iyong pinaka-lesson sa atin ng EDSA, basta magkaisa iyong mga Pilipino, iyong imposible puwedeng puwedeng maging posible,” she told reporters Saturday (Feb. 23), in Naga City, where she led a simple commemoration of the EDSA Revolution’s 33rd anniversary.

    The Vice President emphasized that the spirit of EDSA should not be confined to those holding particular political affiliations, which she said would be an “insult” to many other Filipinos who joined the cause in 1986.

    “Sana ma-break lang iyong misconception na iyong EDSA ay mga ‘dilawan.’ Dahil tingin ko, kapag ganito iyong pagtingin natin, insulto ito sa napakaraming mga Pilipino na wala namang political affiliations noong 1986, na wala namang kulay na nagde-define sa kanila, pero tumulong para isikwal iyong kasamaan, tumulong para baguhin iyong masamang sistema sa bansa natin. Ito, talagang pag-alala sa lahat na Pilipinong nagsakripisyo para mangyari iyon,” she said.

    “Iyong EDSA kasi, pagpapaalala na hindi ito defined by isang kulay, hindi siya defined by any group, hindi siya defined by pulitika. Kasi nangyari lang naman ang EDSA dahil nagkaisa iyong mga Pilipino. Kasi hindi naman mangyayari iyong EDSA kung hindi tayo nagkaisa,” she also said.

    At the rites held in Naga, VP Leni extended her thanks to the City Government and to her fellow Nagueños for ensuring that the lessons of EDSA are not forgotten.

    “Thirty-three years na ang nakalipas, pero kaunti na lang ang mga siyudad, kaunti na lang ang mga local government units na umaalala sa nangyari sa EDSA 33 years ago. Pero ako po, ipinagmamalaki ko na dito sa Naga—na kinikilala bilang Seat of People Empowerment—sinisiguro na hindi nakakalimutan ang aral ng EDSA,” she said.

    In particular, she was elated by the presence of youth groups at the event, saying it is a reminder of the sector’s pivotal role in 1986 and throughout the country’s history.

    “Natutuwa ako na kahit wala pa sila noong EDSA Revolution na nangyari 33 years ago, kabahagi pa rin sila ng pag-alala sa mga aral, kasama sila sa pagsiguro na hindi makalimutan ang halaga ng mga aral ng ating kasaysayan,” she added.
